Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Always pleased to see a fresh face, the Seaside knitters greeted the arrival of fiber artist Willow Adams at Izzy Chambers's studio without even a hint of cynicism. That changed, however, when gallery owner Nick Peabody was found dead and the crafty crafters learned that his entire estate has been left to Willow. Sally Goldenbaum's artful follow-up to Death by Cashmere.
Publishers Weekly

The summer art scene of idyllic Sea Harbor, Mass., provides the backdrop for Goldenbaum's engaging second knitting cozy (after 2008's Death by Cashmere). When Izzy Chambers finds fiber artist Willow Adams lying in the display window of Izzy's Seaside Knitting Studio, she at first thinks Willow is dead, but Willow, whom she invited to do a demonstration at her shop after meeting the waiflike young woman a year earlier in Boston, is merely asleep. When someone fatally poisons Aidan Peabody, a popular Canary Cove artist, Willow becomes a suspect after the authorities learn she's Aidan's sole beneficiary. Other suspects include a frustrated art teacher, a greedy developer and a gallery owner who was jealous of Aidan's influence with Canary Cove's arts council. Goldenbaum weaves a tight plot as Izzy and her knitting friends attempt to untangle another puzzler without dropping a stitch. (May)

    PATTERNS IN THE SAND BY SALLY GOLDENBAUM

    This week we travel to Sea Harbor, Massachusetts, a small fishing village, that has become home to a colony of artists including Izzy Chambers who owns The Seaside Knitting Studio, where the Seaside Knitters meet each week to work on a special project. Right now they are knitting soft caps for cancer patients.

    But tonight after the studio closed, the resident cat, Purl, welcomes out-of-towner Willow Adams into his domicile and causes some excitement to occur in the little village. Willow is a fiber artist whose work Izzy had seen in Boston. She had emailed the artist to praise her work, and is very surprised when the artist shows up in Sea Harbor, but everyone quickly accepts her into their "family" and makes plans for her to showcase and explain her beautiful work. First they want to introduce her to their own gala festival "Art at Night" where the galleries are open late, some with special shows, music, food and drink making for a great party attended by people from near and far.

    Everyone is enjoying this wonderful night until one of the artists is found dead in his secluded garden behind his gallery. Many secrets are revealed after his death and his friends find they didn't know him as well as they thought they did.

    Sally Goldenbaum has written a wonderful story with a tightly knit plot with well patterened characters, who will pick up all the dropped stitches and untangle all the loose ends to solve this mystery. This reader especially enjoyed all the references to her home state of Wisconsin, and that's where the story really began.

    an exciting tight knit whodunit

    Sea Harbor, Massachusetts is a place where people from all fields of art live and work. The village has its own artists' colony and the serenity has enabled many residents to get their creative juices flowing. Late at night fiber artist Willow Adams comes to town with no place to sleep. She breaks into the Seaside Knitters Studio falling asleep at the window facing the street.

    The police arrive, but the store's owner Izzy Chambers refuses to file any charges. Willow tells her and Seaside Knitters Nell, Cass and Birdie that she came to see them to discuss her fiber art. She also wants to meet her biological father Aiden Peabody who allegedly deserted her mother before she was born. However before father and daughter meet, Aiden is found dead, a poison victim. As the main benefactor of Aiden's will as well as desertion issues, she is the prime suspect of the police. However, the Seaside Knitters club members think otherwise and encouraging one another they plan to prove she is innocent by finding the real killer one stitch at a time.

    The second Seaside Knitters amateur sleuth tale (see DEATH BY CASHMERE) is an exciting tight knit whodunit that emphasizes life in a small Massachusetts town in which art is the focus of the community. Told by Nell, the ambience of the art colonies and the tension of the investigation make for a fine one sitting read. Similar in tone and location to Anne Canadeo's WHILE MY PRETTY ONE KNITS, Sally Goldenbaum entertains with this strong thriller the knitting mystery crowd; who have a high quality bar set by Monica Ferris' Minnesota Crewel World and Maggie Sefton's Colorado House of Lambspun.

    this book like her last is wonderful.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed this series. I recently in the last year started knitting and I love mysteries so when I saw there were some books on knitting mysteries I was enthralled. I also love the water and beach scenes from having spent summers as a child on Cape cod. SO with those two things in mind the seaside knitting series was a great match for me. I really enjoyed her first one and then when I got my nook and found the second one on ebook I quickly put it in and I have enjoyed this one as well. I still enjoy reading a book but I have begun to like the ebooks too with the nook now. It is a great edition. Patterns in the sand is a great second book. She keeps you going and you get to the point where you can't put it down and have to finish it. I recommend this series to anyone who knits and likes mysteries and anyone who enjoys the seaside towns and life there. She paints a great picture of the town and all the characters. I can really picture them in my head. I like that in a book. If I can visualize what the characters look like from the descriptions it makes it more exciting for me. I give this book a A+ and I look forward to reading the third one. I hope she comes out with more. I would hate to see it end.

    Boring, Dull, and Predictable

    Since I purchased this book, I forced myself to finish it. The author is excessivly wordy and the characters are not believable. A total waste of money.

    Sea Harbor, Maine, is the home for numerous artists and their st

    Sea Harbor, Maine, is the home for numerous artists and their stores in the Canary Cove Art Colony, where an art festival is held the first Sunday of every month.  Izzy's Seaside Knitting Studio is the gathering place for the ladies in this story.  Then Willow Adams makes an appearance by breaking into the shop and falling asleep in the front window with the shop's cat, Purl.  She's come to town to show her fiber art, or so she says.




    When one of the town's local shop owners dies in a mysterious way, Willow becomes a suspect when it's found that he is actually her estranged father.  The ladies in town find it difficult to believe that this waif of a girl could be a murderer, and decide to investigate for themselves.  In the process, there are lots of gatherings and gossip.




    I love mysteries and cozies.  I'm a big fan of knitting and food.  I really wanted to love this book but it just didn't ever really excited me.  It was a decent story if there were not so many more great cozies to read.  My problems revolved around the numerous gatherings that really weren't that interesting.  The one time focused on knitting caps for cancer patients really caught my interest, but that was about it from the knitting front.  There are so many books in this series, I'm going to assume that this series gets better with future books.  Knitting pattern and information about caps for cancer patients in the back of this book, saved this one for me. Will give this series another try.

    Good Read

    This book is just an easy read. It is a good continuation to the first book and if you just want to relax and not have to concentrate too much on the book, this would be a good one for you.
